Intersessional meetings of the Conference

In the draft resolution entitled “Special session of the General Assembly against corruption”, which was approved by the Conference at its eighth session for subsequent adoption by the General Assembly, the importance of an inclusive preparatory process, including extensive substantive consultations, was reiterated, and the Conference of the States Parties was invited to hold up to three intersessional meetings, as required, to advance such consultations. In accordance with the same resolution, the intersessional meetings of the Conference of the States Parties on the preparations for the special session will be open to participation by all States parties and observers, in accordance with the rules of procedure of the Conference and established practice.

Accordingly, in line with the workplan for its subsidiary bodies for 2020-2021, adopted by the Conference at its eighth session, three intersessional meetings have been scheduled to be held in 2020.
